Daniel H. Pink makes a compelling argument that “timing is everything” as he examines the role that time plays in human interactions. A large existing body of work already evaluates how to address projects, trends, and issues; this book launches what Pink calls a new genre of “when-to” books. He delves into the science of timing and taps into research from various fields. He presents valuable analyses as he addresses the time-related factors that affect people’s daily habits. He discusses the importance of “beginnings, midpoints” and “endings” and the role of timing in group dynamics. Pink complements each chapter with a “Time Hacker’s Handbook” that offers worthwhile exercises to help readers incorporate his when-to concepts into their personal and professional worlds. Pink’s guide will particularly help those who’d like to improve the flow of their days, projects, work and personal schedules, as well as managers who want to boost productivity and workplace satisfaction.
